as commander of international forces in afghanistan, succeeding david petraeus, who is to be the new head of the cia. general allan said he was under no illusion about the challenges in afghanistan. spanish police say they have broken up a major concern that was laundering money from drug trafficking. they dug up some of the money from under the floor of a madrid mansion. it took them 16 hours of searching. when the cash was counted, it totaled 23 million euros. we have been reporting a lot on rupert murdoch and his son james preparing to take questions from the u.k. parliamentary committee. >> it is what everybody's eyes will be on later on today, tuesday. early on, i spoke to a member of the democracy institute. he was talking to me about the cross-examination the murdoch's will face. >> i can see a surprise we can look forward to. the murdoch's well in the comparative cents be somewhat forthright, comparatively in cycle, more than we would have expected, because their attempts to say as little as possible in recent days and weeks have obviously failed miserably. i think they will belat
that great contributions of this for the wars in afghanistan and iraq only 24% said increased domestic spending. and while there is a lot of focus on domestic spending, if you talk to the ode person, it's -- that spending is seen as -- if it involves waste, fraud and abuse. but when benefits or when the entitlements are considered, that's not considered waste, fraud and abuse. >> so when you -- when you asked him about the trade-off they're prepared to accept in terms of, you know, how much cutting are you as a citizen prepared to see, to deal with the debt what do you find? >> surprisingly, when you ask about what is more important, preserving benefits for social security and medicare, or reducing deficit or the debt, 2 to 1 people say preserve our benefits. there is very little give there. now republicans are of the -- more of the view that reducing the deficit should be given high priority. but even among republicans it's really interesting. there is a big income divide. affluent republicans say it is more important to reduce the deficit but poorer republicans, middle class and lowe
crossed over from afghanistan and attacked a village on back stanny soil. the military believes the gunmen were members of the pakistani pakistan in the swat valley. again, in 2009, a military operation chased them away. they say it's a tactic that will not work. wolf? >> an amazing, very, very amazing story. thanks very much for that. it's a startling claim by a man who wants to be president of the united states. we're going to focus on new remarks by republican presidential candidate herman cain who's taking his very vocal concerns about muslims to a whole new level. and when rupert murdoch faces british law makers in a matter of hours, he may feel like he and his entire media empire are on trial. stay with us. you're in "the situation room." discover customersl are getting five percent cashback bonus at the pump... and at many of the places their summer plans take them. it pays to switch, it pays to discover. >> announcer: this past year alone there's been a 67% spike in companies embracing the cloud-- big clouds, small ones, public, private, even hybrid. your data and apps must move ea
are helping insurgents, enemies of the united states in afghanistan and effectively helping to kill americans and other nato forces there. what are they saying about that? >> well, wolf, it doesn't make sense when you look ate from an american perspective. when i was in pakistan earlier this year, pakistani officials are very concerned about two things. they feel a threat from india. they're worried about the indians having influence in afghanistan. there are some elements within pakistan that use these insurgents in afghanistan as sort of a check on india's power there. they don't like this idea of this rival india having influence on the other side of the border. the other thing they worry about is going into the tribal regions, by doing so they kick up a hornet's nest and then those people start to make attacks in places where people really care. you can liken to a very rural part in alaska, there would be a difference between something happening there and something happening in the heart of times square manhattan. that's sort of the pakistani perspective on that, wolf. >> a juror in the c
together in afghanistan as the u.s. agreed to pull out its troops. hillary clinton praised the recent resumption of talks between india and pakistan. >> we think this is the most promising approach to encourage both sides to build more confidence between them and work to implement the kinds of steps that will demonstrate the improved atmosphere that is so necessary for us to deal with the underlying problem of terrorism. >> she also said that terrorism was on everyone's minds following last week's bombing of mumbai which killed 20 people. the attack revealed once again the vulnerability of the indian cities and the police who are investigating. the security agencies should work closer together to prevent future attacks. the focus of the next page of the visit will be on business and the economy. hillary clinton is leaving delhi and is moving south where she will be visiting a factory. all of this going to show how important india has become to the u.s. and the fact is the relationship between these countries have never been warmer than they are today. >> in london, the preparations ar
a new success in their attempts to weaken the government of afghanistan. a key adviser to president hamid karzai, john mohammed khan, was killed inside his home today by three attackers. president karzai's half brother also a government official was assassinated less than a week ago. >>> in egypt, new signs that the health of hosni mubarak is deteriorating. the deposed president slipped into a coma today before regaining consciousness. hospital officials say his condition is now stable. mubarak has been hospitalized since april. the former strongman is said to be dealing with complications from cancer. he faces trial in august on charges of ordering the killing of protesters during egypt's revolution. >>> the health of venezuela's president is in doubt after hugo chavez flew back to cuba for cancer treatment last night. chavez says he'll receive chemotherapy as part of an aggressive treatment plan. he hasn't revealed what kind of cancer he has. president chavez spent less than a month in venezuela after an earlier trip to cuba. he is resisting calls to relinquish power. >>> is there
soldiers fighting in afghanistan, a war, and people don't seem to forget that. so, i would not say that any prime minister would not think that the "sun" is fighting for the right people and in fact, the "sun" continues to fight for the right people. >> and when would one of those prime mensters ask you as either editor or chief editor at the time ask you to not publish a story or would they sort of go over the news and ask you to spike a story? would that happen? >> no. i can't remember an occasion when the prime ministers asked us to not run a story. >> that is not a politicians generally something that would happen? >> no. i mean, i would say that i can remember many occasions when cabinet minister or a politician or prime minister was very unhappy that the stories that we were running. but not that they'd ever pleaded directly for it not to run. >> and if they had, you would not have been interested anyway? >> well, as long as the story was true and accurate and part of the campaign, then, no, there is is no reason for a prime minister, and that is exactly why we have a free press. >> d

at a critical moment with afghanistan broke from her official duties to do a lengthy briefing of murdoch's editors from around the world. no doubt we've seen these sorts of relationships in the u.s. >> does this beg the question, though, something like what happened to "news of the world" could happen here inside the u.s.? if these tactics are being used and administered in that corporation, how come they wouldn't be used in the united states if they are so successful else where? >> well, i think we have to understand that different parts of the world have different approaches to journalism, and there's simply no doubt that the united states has different practices. for instance, we have a constitutional amendment that protects the right to privacy. it's quite engrained in our life, so i'm not sure you'll see an exact parallel, but opening up the discussion about how murdoch operates and the way murdoch's operations have grown via relationships with government is a significant thing to do. remember, rupert murdoch has aggressively lobbied the federal communications commission for a lifti
, mullah omar was dead. we're following the story. we go live to kabul, afghanistan. david, this one has got people wondering. what's going on? >> reporter: well, the news first broke by an afghan television station and then later in the day, cnn and other media received a message by an individual claiming to be a top taliban commander. that individual said that mullah omar had died of heart failure last week and a successor had already been named. the taliban, like you said, later came out and said they have been the victim of a hacking and their phones and emails have been tapped. in fact this message was phoney. cnn doesn't have any confirmation of the sort. we spoke with nato official and they have no operational knowledge on the ground. so the whereabouts of mullah omar are unknown. last believed to be in pakistan, where taliban militants have launched attacks across that border against troops down in the southern region. it's those southern and eastern regions of afghanistan that have experienced some of the highest levels of attacks. and this all comes at a very interesting time.
white house during the wars in afghanistan and iraq, plenty of democrats took principled votes against war funding, whatnot. and there was no chance we would ever cut off funding for the troops on the battlefield. but i don't remember the press indicting those principled stands the way they seem to be indicting republicans taking a stand for smaller government and before we single out for criticism the tea party members of the house republican caucus, they believed they were truly sent there to shrink government and lower taxes. >> listen, i understand all of that, but when you have a deadline. that's what i'm saying. a deadline is a deadline. this show goes on air 8:00 p.m. eastern. i can't keep pushing the thing back. i'm not going to go on the air until i get this. either i do it or i don't when there is a deadline. >> don if you were having your show run by this elements of the tea party, they would be back staij telli stage, no, we think it will be fine, we can put it back until 8:30. there won't be black air on the tv. somehow it will work out. they would say things that are not
